  1. Soon their argument will be “Okay. What if we just say that he did it but he’s sorry and wont do it again?”

  2. Fiona Hill was, by far, the most compelling witness.

  3. If there is still not enough evidence for you, youll learn democracy disappears when corrupt elected officials won’t need your vote to stay in power!

    The Mueller Report contains evidence that can be used to impeach and convict DjT.

    Only the Republican Senate and McConnell stand in the way of removing the real and immediate threat to our Republic posed by the resident of the oval office.

    Vote in 2020 to remove the enablers of DjT’s nascent dictatorship.

  5. ”Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan congressional reports. It is beyond dispute. … I would ask that you not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly promote Russian interests”

    “I refuse to be part of an effort to legitimize an alternate narrative that the Ukrainian government is a U.S. adversary, and that Ukraine,  not Russia attacked us in 2016. These fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for purely domestic political purposes.”

    Dr Fiona Hill

  6. We can finally stop any pretence, that the GOP ever care about The Constitution, or that no one is above the law.

  7. It has become so apparent that Trump, over that last three years, has morphed into Putin’s lap dog. He’s so pathetic.

    • @Gary Lee Your statement is incorrect!! Research!!!

    • @Mainely LOL you are another useful fool.

    • @Rene Curry Actually your Lord and Savior only sent blankets not weapons. You are a useful fool. The butt hurt bureaucrat Hill spewed that she was so concerned with Ukraine getting aid but then was forced to admit she wrote and op-ed piece as a member of the leftist Brookings Institute OPPOSING aid to Ukraine for fear it wound further upset the Russians. She also LIED about election meddling by Ukraine to try to dig up dirt on Trump in 2016.

  8. Great point it is like the OJ trial. The GOP will keep him in office even though the facts show Trump broke his oath of office.

  9. It was heartbreaking to see a guy like Will Hurd, with his background & who will be retiring, place party above country.

    • @Sheri If he kills the GOP, then maybe he was a good thing. They’ve been slimy for decades. It’s not a new thing.

    • No kidding. I thought he was a good Republican in the vein of Flake.

    • Yeah, that was the last straw for me. It is Pearl Harbor time – with propaganda instead of bombs. Trump, Trump supporters, and the GOP are – wittingly or unwittingly – Russian assets. Choose your side because there is no sitting on the sidelines now.

      3LD Hearing that from him was really surprising and almost a 180 from where he began. I’m not a conspiracy guy, but that’s immediately where my mind went. He didn’t look comfortable….Who knows?

    • It was disgusting, not heartbreaking.

  10. It would mean a whole lot to the country if a Republican senate were to remove this guy for corruption.
    It would legitimize the whole thing.

  11. Get ALL of Trump’s phone calls to other leaders. Today’s version of the Nixon tapes.

    It didn’t need to come to this. A responsible congress would have reigned him in after he admitted to obstruction on national television to Lester Holt. The reason he NEEDS to be removed is because of how things have snowballed since republicans refused to honor their constitutional oaths and conduct oversight

    • Michael Schwartz How are you saying”they are horrible” and on the same breath you imagine 19 Senators to flip

    • Michael Schwartz | November 22, 2019 at 4:17 AM | Reply

      @Jame Franco I said neither of those things

    • Well said; this is the reason we have to impeach; Trump has displayed that if you don’t check him he will only get much worse. He did this *the day after* Barr lied him out of the Mueller report.

  13. “I’m not a lawyer, but I do judge highschool debate” LOL

      He’s also a well-educated guy who has been involved in government affairs & politics a long time, not an assistant wrestling coach who looked the other way when his students told him they were being sexually molested by the team doctor. Or a rat who hides in the White House bushes so as not yo be seen when divulging confidential information to the other rat inside.

  14. How much dirt do the Russians have on the GOP to let them betray the West. Not just the USA. The GOP betrayed the entire West.

  15. Facts were clear from the beginning. Fiona Hill is a hero. Stand out witness to the three amigos.

  17. Honestly, are Republicans listening to the same testimony the rest of the world is?????

  18. Trump been a pint all his life. He never been a gallon.

  19. Trump should be impeached and the rest should be criminally prosecuted

  20. Perry and Nunes need to resign immediately.
